Officials with the University of Nevada, Reno say a dormitory that was severely damaged during an explosion last week is structurally sound but currently uninhabitable. That's putting a strain on the school as it prepares for the upcoming academic year.

KUNR's Paul Boger spoke with University Provost Kevin Carman about the explosion, and how the school plans to move forward in the coming months.
